LFW Menswear day scrapbook: February 22, 2012


Posted on 23rd February, by Colin Chapman in 2013, London Fashion Week, menswear. No Comments


Menswear Day is always a sensory overload: with catwalk shows, presentations, installations, chance meetings, not to mention encounters with streetstyle photographers and the bundles of press releases and free papers one inevitably returns home with, all jostling for headspace. So, looking back over the day’s events, captured as memories, by camera, or more likely as blurry iPhone shots, surprises often surface alongside clear recollections of what went by. Here are a few of my favourite moments from Wednesday, caught during the quieter moments of the day.

1. Backstage at the E.Tautz run through at Freemason’s Hall, a model in his own clothes but groomed to perfection by the Toni & Guy team practises his paces.

2. The latest fabrications from Sharpened Lead favourite, Marwood ties. I wasn’t at all surprised to hear that these speckled fabrics have been first to catch the eyes of discerning Fashion Week attendees here and in Paris.3. Here a frosty-looking model at T. Lipop brings a touch of nomadic Arctic explorer to the inside of Somerset House.The Fashion East installations never fail to surprise and provide spectacle.

4. I was very happy to see this Sibling knit blending fair isle and leopard print up close after being wowed by Paris Fashion Week photos,  and to have a chat with Cozette about another adventurous video installation from the trio.
